Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kihei: Haleakala National Park (Haleakala Crater & Pipiwai Trail). And it doesn't end there: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Maui Ocean Center, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and kick back and relax at Kamaole Beach Park III.
